, the notion of americans checking the news on their phones or going to cnn or watching c-span. these things were cultivated in that period sauternes out pulitzer played a historically significant role and the fascinating life that made for great reading but the influence he yielded is with us today. the reason people don't remember pulitzer today as much is in some ways his accomplishment is so happenstance. we're so used to what it is. in the nineteenth century, printing was the internet. i can book a ticket now or everyday -- all commonplace things we don't think it's such a great deal and in some way i am not sure americans remember who morgan was or who rockefeller was or who carnegie was but we drive across a bridges made with steel, that is the carnegie gift, using cars powered by oil, all the world that rockefeller built and using a financial system built on morgan and consuming news built on a system developed and created by people like pulitzer. pulitzer was born in the 1840s and came to the united states as a mercenary soldier to fight in the vietnam-the civil war. they went to re

to the international space station under the soyuz program, and i saw that on cnn, and i figure that would be the way. if i can just find the money somehow, then i would be able to go to space. and it became an inspiration for me to build my company, and opposite i was able to do that, i looked at other possibilities, and i wanted to see if there is a way we can make this happen for everyone. i knew there will be probably million of other young girls who share this dream with me. and we looked at different options, and one was the export company which had just been formed, and i met with the founder, and he is my hero, actually, and he told me about his vision of the prize to inspire entrepreneurs to actually build space ships that would go to space. not government agencies but people in their garages. i thought that would be a really cool idea. you get entrepreneurs building spaceships and prove the government agencies they can do it better, cheaper, faster, and that's when entrepreneurship is about. that's how we became title sponsors of the prize, a $10 million prize for private companies to build

account through payroll deduction. those who participate too often how contribution rate too low. cnn plans need to encourage higher purchasing contributions. i may suggest three easy ways to do so. change the employer match. a typical plan is 50% up to 6% of pay. 6% are marching to plan consider and notched a 30% to 10% of pay would cost the employer for every employer at or about 10% in this case a financial incentives for 10% of pay but no increase cost to the employer. to encourage employers to adopt a higher contribution rate under enrollment. the widespread adoption following the act of 2006 has been a clear victory for public policy at the typical default contribution rate is 3% of falls well short of what is needed to save. we know from extensive research and the employees persist at the default. the solution is
